Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday November 6, 2009 as we present "Cupcakes and Fairy Tales"
Cupcakes remind me of those happy times – they’re so simple, easy and childlike. Who doesn’t love a cupcake? And yet, what is simpler than a tiny round of cake topped with frosting? They’re never overly indulgent, but give us just a bit of fun in a perfectly sized morsel. They appeal to our playful and teasing side.
It’s the simple things like cupcakes that bring us so much pleasure. They’re a scrumptious reminder of the delight we feel when we take time to enjoy the simple things in life. The sweetness of stealing a moment just for you, to soak in a hot luxurious bath or sip your favorite tea from a cherished vintage cup.. The delight of a sharing a special moment with your favorite daughter, granddaughter or child. Tiny pleasures, yet supremely satisfying.
Fairies and fairy tales remind us how easy it is to escape to that land where a little frivolity can brighten a whole day. A bit of fun and fantasy in a world where hard times are far too plentiful. They stir our imaginations and make us believe we can fly on wings sprinkled with fairy dust back to those simpler times.
We only need to find a happy magical moment – think back to a special day or ahead to the possibilities of tomorrow – and dare to dream of the things that delight and refresh our senses. The first snowflake that tickles your nose, the aroma of grandma’s holiday baking, the bubbling laughter of good friends. An impish collection gives us an excuse to make believe, to remember, to dream, and to recharge.
All things whimsical have a place in our lives. Each brings about smiles and wisps of childhood memories. Whether it is a fanciful collection or a whimsical element added to your decor, the hint of fun is a welcoming greeting to all.
